The 1994 Leaf Gold Stars set is one of my all-time favorites. There’s just something about that green marble background, the nautical stars, the player signature, the diamond picture frame and the gold holo-foil border that just leaves me in awe every time I revisit this set. So far ahead of its time.
I can remember buying packs of 1994 leaf when it first hit stores hoping, wishing to pull one of these. The odds: 1:90. The set consists of 15 cards, each serial #d to 10,000. This should give you an idea of the production rate at the time. These cards were notoriously tough pulls. In 1994, these cards fetched upwards of $100. Today, these cards can be had on the secondary market for anywhere from $2-20. Keep an eye out for 1994 Leaf Gold Stars; they are gems.
